astia-event-img24The venture industry, now more than ever, is in dire need of quality deal flow that includes women and other under-represented groups. Astia Venture Showcases connect qualified, investment-ready companies to venture capital.

Relaunching October 4, 2017 in a virtual format, showcases will be live streamed the first Wednesday of each month 8.00 PT | 11.00 ET | 17.00 BT.

Originally launched in 2000 in Silicon Valley, Astia showcases offer VCs access to pre-screened companies founded and/or led by women. Presenting companies have been vetted by the Astia Expert Sift™ screening process that leverages the wisdom of a highly curated, expert crowd made up of serial entrepreneurs, investors, c-suite executives and industry experts. Each company has successfully passed completely through the Sift process, ensuring that the Astia Showcase will quickly become a valued source of quality investment opportunities for your Fund.
